My Current Project: Still Working on the Kitchen!

#MyCurrentProject #repurposing

My hubby and I are still working on the kitchen redo and I'm almost ready to post his latest and greatest! Has something to do with this outdated kitchen pic below and a pile of fence boards. Can you guess what it is?

You can see more of our projects in the link below.

    @Kris Broughton My husband may have done that exact same thing! Not telling yet!

    I can't wait to see this as a backsplash when it's done!!

    Thanks Amy Ellis! I'm working on the post and trying to get decent pictures. We have no windows at that end of the kitchen and it's a bear to photograph!

    Thanks Miriam I !!! I love playing with a backsplash!
  • Would love to see it when it's done. At the moment I'm modernizing an 80's oak bathroom with paint only. Counterops and doorknobs included.

    Jaderbomb that is so original!

    Kris B let me know how the countertops turned out and what you used. We're facing a countertop decision, too.

    Just posted the backsplash! Hope you'll all come by and take a look!


  • Marty's Musings Awesome! I love it so much. The weathered wood was just the right thing to use as your backsplash. Really tied everything together:)

    Thanks so much Tina @ Repurposed Life!

    Thanks Marty
  • Just saw the finished results - just like I pictured. Am I physic? Looks great. You must be pleased. So far so good on the counter top. Sealer going on today. Will let you know. So far so good - and "cheap as chips" $-wise!
  • The counter top is done! It looks great. A painter told me how to do it. If you can buy melamine paint in the States you can save yourself some steps as I've used that before when you could buy it here in Canada. Other than that hre goes.

    Kris Broughton Thanks for the info! I forwarded it to my husband.
